Ali Enjoying Tennis

Ali is participating in tennis camp this week at Hernando Hills. She is loving it! And Coach Ragan says, "Ali has an arm on her"! Hoping she can learn ball control.

Off to Camp

Beau is off at Camp Lake Stephens this week with four of his buddies from Hernando. He left yesterday and was excited for all the fun activities ahead and freedom from home! Hoping he remembers to take a bath.

Gator Great Year!

The 2012 Baseball season is over. Last night, the Hernando Gators won the June Jam tournament. The team had to win 7 games and come out of the losers bracket to earn the right to play the Mustangs in the championship game. The Gators ten defeated the Mustangs twice to bring home 1st place! The Gators were also winners of the May Madness tournament. The team was also league champions. Way to go Gators! And way to go Derick and Beau!

Ali "little lane"

Ali has been in preschool until noon three days a week for three years. On those half days, we would often take a nap before picking up Beau. Over the last six weeks, Ali has been convinced she is getting too big for naps. Here she is Friday on the way to Beau's school. (Not tired at all). I am going to miss naps with Ali. I am going to miss afternoons with my little girl, or my "little lane", as her teachers lovingly call the littlest Biglane.

Graduation for Ali

We are so proud of Ali! She graduates from preschool at Hernando United Methodist Church tonight! Next year she joins Beau at SBEC. What a big girl. So proud of you! And we love Ms. Mary and Mrs. Jenn!

Pitch and Catch

Derick and Beau have started letting Beau practice pitching. Right now, there is interest from Beau who wants to hear, "strrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiikkkkkeee" yelled with each pitch he throws. Honestly, he may never pitch a game in his life. Who knows if he will even want to play baseball next year? But I know one thing, Derick coaches Beau just right! It is fun watching Beau smile as he learns something new. And it is fun watching Derick smile when Beau actually listens!

Davy Crockett for Second Grade Wax Museum

All kids in second grade chose a famous person to study. They had to choose 5 facts, and dress as this individual for "Wax Museum Day" at SBEC. Beau chose Davy Crockett. Love it!

Gator Baseball Begins

The 2012 baseball season has begun! Beau is playing second base and Ali returns as part-time cheerleader/ all-the-time player with friends. Derick is coaching again in this final year of "coach pitch". Go Gators!
